Touché Amoré are just one of those bands. You know, the ones where you can’t accurately describe them with words, and instead point people towards their music and tell them to see for themselves. The outfit’s last record, the beautiful Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me, effectively put their name out to a much wider audience, and helped establish them as one of the front-runners in today’s post-hardcore scene. Two years later, and the band are ready to unleash another amazing album upon us, titled Is Survived By. You can view the trailer below.
I dig it. I love the excerpt of audio within the song. Then the vocals come in, and I’m sure it will hit like a wall in the context of the entire song. Jeremy’s lyrics are always top notch, so I expect nothing short of some spectacular poetry. I also really dig how post-rock the track sounds. Similar to what they did on their split with Pianos Become The Teeth in January, which had a song around four and a half minutes long, as opposed to PTSBBAM, where 13 songs made an album that was 20 minutes long and an average time of about a minute and a half. I have a feeling that the band will continue on the path of longer songs, and if they can do it, and do it well, then we’re sure to get another album that will be on many year-end lists from all corners of the internet.
Is Survived By will be out September 24th via Deathwish Inc.
